A procession to honor fallen Pierce County sheriff’s deputy Daniel A. McCartney will be held Tuesday afternoon.
Fellow deputies will transport his flag-draped coffin from the Medical Examiner’s Office in Tacoma to Mountain View Memorial in Lakewood.
The public is invited to line the streets along the route and pay respect to McCartney, who was fatally shot late Sunday while chasing two burglars away from a home near Frederickson.
Never miss a local story.
The procession is scheduled to begin about 1 p.m.
It will start at 3619 Pacific Ave., head south on Pacific Avenue, make a right onto S. 84th Street, a left on South Tacoma Way, a right on Steilacoom Boulevard Way and end at 4100 Steilacoom Blvd. SW.
Several people have been remembering McCartney at the sheriff’s South Precinct in Puyallup, where McCartney was based.
A memorial of flowers, cards, hand-written notes and candles continues to grow at the precinct, 271 John Bananola Way.
Other people and companies brought food for the deputies.
“Throughout the day, we have received incredible support from our community,” the Sheriff’s Department wrote on its Facebook page.
McCartney was killed late Sunday after responding to a home invasion in the 5100 block of 200th Street East and giving chase as two men sprinted from the scene.
Within three minutes, shots rang out and McCartney radioed dispatchers to say he’d been shot.
He died hours later at St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma.
One suspect was found dead at the shooting scene. The other was arrested in the area on unrelated warrants as the manhunt was underway.
It wasn’t until Monday afternoon that investigators got a more detailed description of the second suspect and realized he was already in jail.
